My husband and I are interested in coming to the April 2nd event. What is the prices for it, do you have a flyer that you can send to me? I haven't been to one in yrs. And no body down here in the Zanesville Area does them anymore.

So the sensor goes in the driver seat? All the shows I've been to were DBdrag so the sensor was mounted to the windshield on the passenger side. If you stay in your vehicle then obviously have you have to sit on the passenger side right?

Also concerning SPL in the Street division, it says:


13. Rear deck must maintain factory appearance, have no holes and must have some type of upholstery/covering.

But then it also says:


15. Any brackets, panels, 3rd row seats, and/or non-structural supports in the cargo area (behind the back seat and lower than
the top of the back seat) that can be unbolted or unscrewed may be removed, provided they can be reinstalled using factory fasteners
and do not violate any other rules in section D.

I drive a hatchback and my OEM rear deck is completely removable. It literally just snaps in, it's basically a beauty panel. Would I be allowed to remove that for the competition?

THanks for asking! The mic sits on a stand in the driver's side unless you elect to have it in the passenger's side. you can sit in the vehicle on the other side of the mic stand as long as the vehicle does not exceed 145db (if it does automatic DQ but you can always retry). if you lack a remote it is okay to lean in and hit the play button and come back out (u can have open doors and windows in meca).

As for the rear deck panel, it has to stay on, it is not considered part of the cargo area. The rule 15 you quoted refers more to suvs with 3rd row seats or other things like those false floor panels on explorers that are truly part of the cargo area because they are behind the backseat but not structural. The rear deck on a hatchback for the most part is structural and because it is supposed to maintain a factory appearance it has to have that beauty panel on. Now you can bolt that panel down and put deadener between it and the rear deck to strengthen it and keep it from flexing, but it must still be there

Alright, no biggie. I'm hoping to make it down there, I've been wanting to compete but DBdrag's battery rules would have put me in a high class where I don't think I'd even have a shot. I like MECA's class system a lot better...

Well Custom Vans/Vehicles had one about 4 yrs ago. And back before Auto Illusions shut down in Newark they had them too. I guess down this way their ain't as much interest. But maybe if the word got out more there would be more people interested. I think I am going to send the link to a the fly to a few friends and then maybe they will send it to their friends that have systems. I am for sure going to the Meca event in Columbus on the 2nd. Do they have anything ever in Cambridge?

So what all will I have to do for this event. I was looking at meca rules but all the lingo confuses me lol. I remember when I went to the isaca ones in Newark when Audio Illusions had them they just did the db drag and they had certain classes like 0-150 151-300 and so on. can you explain what all things I will have to have done to come to this event. I am sorry to sound dumb but they have changed stuff in the last 5 or 6 yrs.

got the globe for ya brian, hope u get better.

Zombiequeen there will be 5 separate formats: SPL measured at the headrest, Park and Pound SPL measured 6ft away from your vehicle, Sound Quality based off the official MECA SQ disc which I the judge will have, Install judging how well your install is and how well you know it, and RTA. If you just want to do loudness then stick to SPL and Park and Pound. Classes are by subwoofer cone area and Fusing on the amp or 18" from the amp and closer. for instance if you have 100 amp fuse and 2 12s the formula says 100x10 + 113x2 = 1226 which would be Street 3 or modified 3

DO I need to be there right at 10? I don't want to miss anything. I know I am going to do the spl and park and pound, maybe installation. I don't think I should do SQ I mean my mids and highs sound good but I ain't got nothing special just the factory bose.
